OBC’s 2nd Annual O’CTOBERFEST!

September 17, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 9:00 pm

We’re bringing back this HUGE event for a second year! At our O’Ctoberfest we celebrate the famed German beer festival on its traditional date, but of course we’re doing it O’Connor style!
It’s all centered around the release of our O’Ctoberfest beer–a Marzen-style lager that’s brewed with Pilsner, Vienna, and Munich malts; German Magnum hops and Pacific Gem hops. At the beginning of the day, we’ll be ceremonially rolling out a huge barrel of this beautiful beer to kick off the festivities.

Then, throughout the day, we’ll have beer festival games–including a Stein Hoisting Competition!–and all sorts of lawn games.

Bring your appetite because we’ll have two delectable German food trucks on-site. Gerty’s Gourmet Kitchen and Deutscher Imbiss will be dishing up the delicious German fare, like bratwursts and schnitzel and pretzels.

We’ll also have a live musical performance by our favorite beer-loving band, the Esoteric Ramblers, who have added some German festival songs to their set just for the occasion. Headlining the evening are The Special Guests, whose unique fusion of dance, funk, jazz and rock will have you up on your feet and shimmying the night away!

You’ll be able to enjoy the whole festival outside and in, rain or shine–because we’ll have our beautiful, new, shaded beer garden and outdoor bar open for communal drinking/eating.

On top of all that, we’ll have some fun free giveaways and tons of delicious seasonal beers on tap.

If you’re worried about how you’re getting home from this shindig, we have vouchers from App a Cab, our official Safe Ride Sponsor.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to fill growlers on this day in order to better keep the beer flowing. Also, due to the loud volume of the bands and crowds, we request that you please leave pets at home during this event.

And finally–if you come dressed in lederhosen or a dirndl, we will give you a special discount on your bar tab!

Auf wiedersehen until then!!!
